This is the Parador closest to Barcelona (82 km by dual carriageway); visits can be made to this cosmopolitan city and back in a very short time. The hotel recovers the traditional air of the Catalan farmhouse and its well looked-after garden, bedrooms with terraces and a magnificent swimming pool, with exceptional views of the setting, are added values, like the spaciousness and comfort of the interior rooms.

The restaurant is exquisitely decorated, offering Catalan specialities such as the popular Osona sausages, 'carn d'olla' (stew), and anglerfish au gratin with ali-oli sauce.

For those coming from Barcelona, take the C-17 (formerly the N-152), and those coming from Lleída take the C-25, and to access the Parador you must stay in the direction of Girona on the C-25 until you reach the Vic-Est/Roda de Ter exit, and continue toward Roda de Ter. A few meters on you will see the sign for the Parador. For those coming from Girona, take the first exit you reach--Vic-Est/Roda de Ter--and continue toward Roda de Ter and take the Parador turn-off.
